Jeff Gordon has won two of the last four races this season and should be considered a favorite to add another victory at Bristol. His most recent of five victories on that track came in 2002.

It has been a while since Gordon won at Bristol, but his latest victory at Michigan came in 2001 and that did little to slow his Chevrolet in the Pure Michigan 400. Gordon shares the record of most wins among active drivers with Kurt and Kyle Busch, who also have five victories apiece.

Jeff Gordon took the lead from Joey Logano with 17 laps remaining and scored the 91st victory of his career. It was his third of the season, tying him with Dale Earnhardt Jr., Brad Keselowski, and Jimmie Johnson for the most wins this year.

Gordon’s last victory before this week came via a strong restart with 17 laps remaining at Indy. One of Gordon’s biggest challenges this year has been the first few laps of green, so these two wins are significant for fantasy players as they show a great improvement.

Jeff Gordon posted the fastest single lap in final practice for the Pure Michigan 400. His top speed was 200.156 mph and his 10-lap average speed was 198.195 to make him the quickest in this session as well.

In final practice, track conditions were more similar to those the drivers will face on Sunday and this balance of speed and durability over the long run is a good sign that Gordon could win his 91st career Cup race.

Jeff Gordon backed up his pole winning run on Friday by posting the third-fastest speed in Saturday morning’s practice session. His top speed was 203.069 mph.

By comparison, Gordon’s pole winning speed was logged at 206.558 mph, which is a difference of about three and half miles per hour. The key to success for Gordon will be to get into and stay in clean air on Sunday.

Jeff Gordon won the pole for the Pure Michigan 400 with a blisteringly fast lap of 206.558 mph, easily eclipsing the old track record of 204.557 mph set by Kevin Harvick this June.

Gordon was not alone at the top of the grid as Joey Logano (206.381) and Carl Edwards (206.115) also cracked the 206 mile-per-hour mark. Qualification is important at Michigan and each of these drivers improved their odds of finishing at least among the top 10. Last August in this race Logano won from the pole.

3M will join 11-time Sprint Cup Series champions Hendrick Motorsports beginning with the 2015 NASCAR season when it will become a primary sponsor of driver Jeff Gordon and his No. 24 Chevrolet SS team.

The new relationship will feature 3M as a primary sponsor in 11 Sprint Cup races annually and as an associate-level partner in all other events. The agreement covers the 2015, 2016 and 2017 NASCAR seasons. All five of 3M's business units, which comprise more than $31 billion in annual sales, will use the sponsorship in consumer promotions, product launches and business-to-business opportunities.-Hendrick Motorsports

Jeff Gordon started the weekend by earning his first Watkins Glen pole in more than a decade and for most of the Cheez-it 355k at the Glen it appeared he would be one of the challengers to score his first win on this track since 2001. An electrical gremlin put him behind the wall for four laps, however, and sent him home 34th.

Gordon will chose to remember how strong he ran in the first 50 laps instead of how he finished and so long as he has a strong Michigan race next week, he will automatically regain his momentum.
Aug 10 - 11:06 PM

With a speed of 129.446 mph, Jeff Gordon won his third Watkins Glen pole of his career and first since 2003.

Gordon’s long hiatus from the pole is matched by a long streak of no top-five finishes at the Glen, but he is having a season reminiscent of his efforts in the late 1990s and early 2000s. In that era he won four races in a span of five years and could add another victory on Sunday.

AARP and AARP Foundation’s nationwide campaign to address the problem of older adult hunger through the Drive to End Hunger program will return with 11-time NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champions Hendrick Motorsports in 2015 as a primary sponsor of driver Jeff Gordon and his No. 24 Chevrolet SS team.

Through AARP’s sponsorship of the No. 24 Chevrolet, the AARP Foundation’s Drive to End Hunger program will be featured as a primary partner in 13 Sprint Cup races next season, including the 2015 Daytona 500, and on portions of the car as an associate sponsor in all other events. It will mark AARP’s fifth year as a primary sponsor of the No. 24 team, which is unprecedented in NASCAR for a social cause.-Hendrick Motorsports

Jeff Gordon scored four victories in five Watkins Glen races from 1997 through 2001, but has earned only two top-10s in 12 races since. His most recent strong run came in the 2010 Heluva Good! Sour Cream Dips at the Glen when he finished 10th.

Gordon is having a throwback year that rivals his heyday. A return to Victory Lane is a stretch considering his 12-year average finish of 21.5 at the Glen, but he should be able to return to the top 10 without much difficulty.
Aug 6 - 11:45 AM

Gordon had the dominant car for most of the GoBowling.com 400, but a series of late-race restarts caused him to fall back in the field and finish just outside the top five in sixth.

Gordon’s restarts were slightly better than he usually performs, but the car was not set up to run in traffic. He led the most laps and spent enough time in the lead pack to score the best running position of 4.962. Gordon also made a little history in the Pocono race; he earned his 446th career Cup top-10, which ties him for third on the all-time list with Bobby Allison.
Aug 3 - 5:21 PM

Jeff Gordon posted the second fastest lap in Pocono’s final practice session for the GoBowling.com 400. His top speed was 178.536 mph.

One might call this a virtual tie with Brad Keselowski. Gordon’s time was only 3/1,000ths of a second slower in the final session. Gordon also posted the third-quickest time on the 10-lap chart and coupled with his experience at Pocono, he might have a slight edge over the driver of the No. 2. Fantasy owners should not be surprised if the battle for the victory comed down to these two drivers.

Jeff Gordon and team will use the second Pocono practice of the weekend as a test session. The team is trying out various suspension parts.

The track and weather conditions are radically different from what the teams will face in the race, and it is this kind of forward thinking that has kept the team in the top 15 all season.
Aug 2 - 9:06 AM

Jeff Gordon will pilot chassis No. 24-869 this week for the Pennsylvania 400. It has been raced three times in 2014, including earlier this year at Pocono.

In those three starts Gordon has swept the top 10. He finished eighth in the Pocono 400, was sixth at Kentucky, and won the Kansas 5-hour Energy 400. Gordon has a better than average shot at winning back-to-back races after last week’s Indy triumph. He should be a lock to finish in the top five.
